Biography in: John Wakeman, editor. "World Film Directors, Volume One, 1890-1945". Pages 245-251. New York: The H.W. Wilson Company, 1987.

Took over direction of Duel In The Sun (1946) after director King Vidor walked off the production, tired of the constant meddling by producer David O. Selznick. Although he went uncredited, Dieterle attempted to appeal to the Directors Guild Of America, but they turned down his claim.
